The book presents a collection of theoretical texts written and published by academician Velimir Neidhardt in the last 50 years (starting in 1968). The editor of the book dr.sc. Alen Žunić selected 120 seminal texts written by V. Neidhardt including some that have never been published before. The texts belong to diverse genres: from short notes, essays, interviews, project presentations to serious research studies. They are grouped into nine thematic sections: topics about Zagreb, urban planning, theoretical and historical reflections on architecture, architects, methodological aspects of architectural design, problems of professional activity, books and exhibitions, and the author’s own works. Besides, the book comprises a selection of Neidhardt’s interviews about various professional topics, the culture of space use and construction. The book also contains a selection of texts written by relevant architecture critics who offered an objective discourse in judging Neidhardt’s work.
